Daily Words of the Buddha for September 27, 2013

Hirīmatā ca dujjīvaṃ
niccaṃ sucigavesinā,
suddhājīvena passatā.

Difficult is life for the modest one
who always seeks purity,
is detached and unassuming,
clean in life, and discerning.

Dhammapada 18.245

The Dhammapada: The Buddha's Path of Wisdom, 
translated from the Pali by Acharya Buddharakkhita
